On Tuesday we had the opportunity to have a candid conversation with Dan O’Brien. The deputy chief of staff for the NDP Caucus had a lot of knowledge on current issues and we were happy to learn from him. Dan was an OLIP intern almost 10 years ago and has been in and out of the Pink Palace ever since. He had some great insight to share with us and we were able to pick his brain about the last provincial election, campaign strategy and Toronto municipal politics. A discussion of the evolving role of polling as a source of information to affect policy was especially fascinating. It was great to meet with Dan and we are pleased to have one more friendly face to run into in Queen’s Park’s hallowed halls!
